It's not the film's fault, but it has got to be enormously frustrating to all involved that the "water on Mars" news just broke. One of the things "The Martian" does better than most films in this genre is ground everything in actual science. That's one of the pleasures of the film, watching smart people do smart things that are real, and it would have been great to see what they did with Watley having to extract water. Ultimately, Fox may have gotten a real bump in audience awareness with the timing of the news, but it still must be maddening to have gotten so much right and still fall just that wee bit short.
